Happy 30th Birthday, Roger Federer!
Roger, Rafa, Andy Murray and The Djoker are all in the Rogers Cup Masters 1000 opening in Montreal today – and they’ll all be coming here next week! None of them have played, I don’t think, since Wimbledon, so hopefully everyone’s rested and ready. And upbeat, positive, happy.
Roger is just a half step off his previous perfection. Makes my heart ache to see such beauty and grace on the court begin to fade. But I can get a little irritated with his Leo self when he refuses to make any adjustments. Not a bigger racket with a bigger sweet spot. Not taking the tiniest bit off as he aims for the line. Not stepping in a foot closer when he takes that swing.
His Leo-ness brought him to perfection and now is adding to less than perfection. A lesson for us all, as his strength becomes perhaps his weakness.
Stay with the Joy in all that you do, Roger! xoxox
